Teen gang membership can harm adult years
from Medical News Today
A new study suggests that having been a member of a teen gang means years later an adult is not only at higher risk of crime conviction and receiving illegal income, but also is less likely to have completed high school and more likely to be in poor health, receiving welfare and struggling with drug abuse. Writing in the American Journal of Public Health, researchers from the University of Washington in Seattle, describe how they used 23 risk factors to identify children likely to join street gangs, then compared some who did and some who did not and linked this to outcomes in adult years.
